Find Rowland Oakes's campsite
Fly to the camp located in the North Hogwarts Region. Land far enough away from the camp so you won't be spotted. After landing, immediately cast Disillusionment spell or drink an invisibility potion.
Defeat the Goblins Occupying Rowland's Camp
There will be 5 enemies at level 18 in the camp. Try eliminating the goblins one by one with a stealth attack or defeat them in combat.
Investigate the campsite to find a clue
Pick up Rowland's journal and map, located at the entrance to a small cave. The map will show you where to go.
Use Rowland's map to follow his trail
When leaving the camp, turn right and follow the stream. Along the way, your character will inform you about passing places from Rowland's map. Keep going straight until you reach the goblin camp called Korrow Ruins.
Enter the goblin outpost
Land at the fast travel point and sneak into the camp. Go through the main gate into the courtyard. On the left, you will find a ladder - go up and turn right.
Go along the walls and defeat goblins by the fire. Then enter the building through the gate.
Explore the goblin outpost and find Rowland Oakes
After entering the castle, keep going forward. Along the way, you will encounter groups of goblins. You can try to walk past them undetected or clear the locations of enemies.
In the next room, turn right and destroy the wooden barricade covering the passage. Then go right, climb to the upper level of the castle and turn right again. Follow the corridor until you reach a large room with a huge stove and lots of enemies.
Under the stove you will find a descent to the lower level. Follow the corridor down until you reach the imprisoned Rowland.
Talk to Rowland through his cell door
Go to the door and talk to Rowland. The wizard will ask you to find his wand.
Find Rowland's wand
Go back to the previous room and set fire to the wooden logs under the stove using the appropriate spell, e.g. Incendio. Go through the round door.
In the next room, you will fight a lot of goblins. The strongest of them, Pergit, will be at level 21. Try to eliminate a few of them with stealth attacks first. Use the right spells to break through their defensive shields. Accio or Depulso spells will work best on Pergit to penetrate his defenses.
Go to the small room on the right. The wand will be on the table.
Give Rowland his wand
Return to Rowland and give him the wand. Lastly, talk to the wizard.
